Ukrainians cautiously optimistic after EU agrees to membership talks

Kyiv (Ukraine) (AFP) – Following a long night of talks in Brussels, the European Union has agreed to begin membership negotiations with Kyiv.

While EU membership talks were agreed, Orban refused to greenlight another 50 billion euros in support to Ukraine over the next four years.
